Hi,
Don't know what it's called, but it's now changed to 'forager,pioneer' then I noticed everyone's is different! So what's it called and what does it mean?

Thanks

Hi, I asked this last week. Basically it changes with the number of posts you write. You're on pioneer, previously you'd have been a tenderfoot, an active member and a full member as we go back in time. Eventually you end up as a wayfarer...but you've a way to go yet..

Its only been changed recently. [There were some names under the old naming system that people really didnt like.]

I always thought it'd be a good idea to put the celtic tribal place names of people under their name.

Like this map shows:

Mine would be Brigantes [No 10] as Im from Yorkshire, which roughly translated means 'Hill Dweller'

So you Tommy, living in Norfolk would have been Iceni, [no 16] or 'Horse People' :)

I am a Siluris - cool! And an optimist... And as I'm close to 100 posts there's something else I'll be soon!

Ooooh nice I've gone from being a tenderfoot to a pioneer! In just one post... Hadn't thought to call it a 'rank' but I'll bite..
